"People with arthritis can’t ignore their pain. Let’s make sure the Government doesn’t either."

Versus Arthritis has launched a UK-wide campaign to make sure that people with arthritis and musculoskeletal conditions are a priority at the national and local level following the restoration of NHS and public services during the COVID-19 pandemic.

They would like your support to help ensure the voices of people with arthritis are heard by decision-makers. You can get involved by:

  • Sharing your support for the campaign on social media
  • Sharing their Petition to the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Sport calling for a national plan to bring down joint replacement waiting lists safely
  • Writing to your MSP asking them to find out if arthritis and musculoskeletal conditions are being prioritised locally in their constituency
